Synopsis: In the pilot episode of this acclaimed series, lawyer Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) returns to work after a scandal involving her husband.
Cat Cattle Call: Alicia’s first case is pro bono work defending a woman whose murder trial previously ended with a hung jury. She soon learns the one holdout was a crazy cat lady named Mrs. Duretsky (Karin Konoval). Alicia calls on the woman to hear her reasons for insisting the defendent is innocent and is surrounded by the woman’s cats as they discuss the trial.
Final Mewsings: Crazy cat ladies are not always so crazy!
